Apparently, when your team allows a bajillion (OK, seven) goals in one game, it might be time to make at least some changes.

That’s the way it goes with the St. Louis Blues, who made some minor alterations to their lineup today. Let’s break down the Blues’ moves in these easy to read bullet points.

  • They placed forward David Perron on the injured reserve because of his concussion issues. Honestly, I’m kind of surprised that he wasn’t on the IR already.
  • The Blues called up solidly named player Stefan Della Rovere as well as forward Dave Scatchard from Peoria.
  • Of course, aside from cases of injury, when players are called up others must be demoted. T.J. Hensick and Chris Porter were demoted to the minor league level to make room for Della Rovere and Scatchard.

Ultimately, these are minor moves made by a team that’s a little banged up and might benefit from the cliched injection of a new blood.
